Intersection of Curved Surfaces and Solids
Curved elements are available only in RFEM. It's possible to intersect curved surfaces and solids.
When doing this, the program generates surfaces with the "Trimmed" surface type. With this technology, you can create very complex geometries, such as pipe intersections or curved openings, with a single click.
The intersection of solids is carried out adaptively using the new solid types "Hole" and "Intersection", according to the set theory. Use this method to create new, complex solid geometries similar to the manufacturing process (drilling, milling, turning, etc.). Therefore, it is possible to create complex curved surface or perforated solid elements. It's a simple process!
- My model in RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 is unstable. What could be the reason?
- The cross-sections from my imported IFC file are not converted correctly.
- When importing a cross-section from RSECTION 1, I get an error message regarding the version. What can I do?
- There are no automatic load combinations created. What can I do?
- I get Error 1327: Calculation failed. What can I do?
- The result of extreme values is not displayed. Where can I activate the max/min information?
- I would like to determine and consider the stiffness of a line support using a fictitious wall. Why is this option grayed out?
The load distribution on my members looks different when using the Load Transfer surface vs. the Load Wizards. What is the reason?
- Where can I change my license?
The structural analysis program RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM 6 is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program can also design combined structures as well as solid and contact elements.
